colonists in Southern Italy and after 
modifications with use and influenced 
by contact with the later Greeks, this 
alphabet became the vehicle of culture 
in western Europe. The primitive lack 
of fixed order in picture stories is paral¬ 
leled by the young child’s lack of fixed 
order in speech. To him the order of 
words is nothing at first. 

The Egyptian hieoglyphs were 
sometimes arranged in horizontal lines, 
sometimes in vertical columns. There 
was no fixed rule as to direction in 
which they were written, but they were 
read in the opposite direction to that 
in which the animal’s head pointed. 

redoubled his effort to break loose. 
There followed a short run of two or 
three rods, during which Ben was 
bothered and impeded by snarls of 
useless rope that dangled round his 
legs. Finally he stepped on a strand 
of it, his feet shot from under hint, 
land he measured his length on the 
ground. He instantly let go the 
rope for his experience of the past 
few minutes in being dragged over 
the ground had been too unpleasant 
for him to wish to repeat it. 

But his troubles were not to be 
ended so ensily. Ben had reckoned 
without the tangled rope, at least 
fifteen feet of which was dragging 
behind him in irregular loops and 
coils. When he fell it drew tight 
round his left leg at the knee, and 
almost instantly he felt himself 

come. (This idea is dropped here in

yourselves of the opportunity to bring 
a little fresh cheer into lonely lives.)

When Ben Gilbert went to work 
on the Cunningham ranch he was 
both amused and disgusted at the 
method of catching the horses there.. 

In the East, where he had been 
brought up, the work horses could be 
caught anywhere in the barn lot, but 
the Western animals while loose in 
the corral would snort and plunge if 
a matt approached them with a bridle 
in his hand. They were usually 
gentle and tractable enough, how¬ 
ever, once a rope was round their 
necks. Not only the saddle horses, 
but the teams used in plowing and 
hauling had to be lassoed. 

After a little practice Ben could 
toss a noose over the head of a horse 
as it ran past him in the big corral 
or huddled with the others in a 
corner. Generally speaking he had 
no trouble in bridling and harnessing 
a horse after he had roped it and 
tied it to a post. Most of the horses 
were draft animals such as he had 
been accustomed to driving. There 
were a few, howevet, that were of 
Spanish stock and were thoroughly

During the ages in which picture 
writing was practically the sole means 
of written communication the various 
spoken languages had been keeping 
It was a 

pace in their development 
long time before it dawned upon man 
that all words are expressed by a few 
sounds and that all that was needed 
was to select from the big and confus¬ 
ed mass of ideograms, phonograms and 
all their kin, a certain number of signs 
to denote unvaryingly certain sounds. 

Such a step meant the birth of an 
alphabet, “one of the greatest ant) 
momentous triumphs of the human 
mind.” By the use of twenty-six 
simple characters we can represent to 
the eye all that men say or have said, 
using hundreds of thousands of words. 

Picture characters had come to sug¬ 
gest spoken names of the ideas which 
they signified. This name was often 
the same as another word of different 
meaning, as sun and son, the character 
of the sun stood for both. Pen also 
stood for write, right, rite and wright. 
The thought thus came that a charac¬ 
ter might represent a sound indepen¬ 
dent of the sound’s meaning. 

From this the significant advance 
was»made of representing polysyllabic 
words by a succession of characters, 
each representing the sound of one of 
its syllables, practically the rebus with 
which children puzzle each other to 
this day. So says Taylor in an early 
history of mankind. “Prior Burton's 
name is sculptured in St. Savior’s 
Church as a cask with a thistle on it.” 
The Egyptians used the figures and 
the .Aztecs even wrote proper names in 
the rebus fashion. 

The Mexican illustrates a still fur 
ther and important step beyond the 
rebus, and toward an alphabet. The 
character is used not to stand for the 
sound of the whole word, but for its 
initial sound or syllable. 

By this principle the first steps were 
taken ill breaking up the word, and 
especially the syllable, into constituent 
sounds. But for primitive man and 
young children the spoken word is a 
unit. The analysis into syllables came 
later with difficulty and to few nations. 

The Chinese language is confined to 
monosyllables, and there are but a few 
hundred of these. In speaking they 
use four varieties of tone or accent in¬ 
creasing the number of spoken words 
to 1203. An example from Taylor, 
the word pa has in Chinese eight dis¬ 
tinct significations. The phonogram

against the brink of the gully; the 
other was pulled forward bv the rope. 
The strain on his back and his knee 
was terrific. Then like a log upend¬ 
ed he was brought to his feet. The 
speed of the horse was checked for 
a while. The danger was that in an¬ 
other instant the horse would gather 
speed again and throw him flat on 
his face. Just ahead of him and not 
more than two feet to his left stood 
the little mesquite tree. Beyond and 
on either side of it were several jag¬ 
ged stones; one of them was scarelj 
a yard to the left of it. Through al¬

effort Ben sat up and drew in en¬ 
ough of the slackened rope to make 
a turn round the tree. Holding it 
firm with one hand, he worked with 
the other at the loop round his leg. 
After a time he got himself free.

the stacks. Old Piute, whose shoul¬ 
der was now entirely well, was one 
of the pair left for Ben to work. 

When the foreman had ridden 
away after breakfast, Ben and the 
cook were the only persons left at the 
ranch. After searching in the har¬ 
ness shed and in the corral Ben 
found a tangled coil of stiff rope and 
went to catqh bis team, which the 
foreman had ({riven in from the 

Ben did not trouble to untangle all 
the rope, which he thought must be 
fifty feet long, but when he had run 
a noose in one end and had shaken 
twenty or thirtv feet of it free of 
snarls he advanced toward the horses, 
lie-wanted to catch Old Piute first, 
but'the other horse, a stocky roan, 
kept getting in the way. Ben finally 
caught the roan, led it outside, and 
put the harness on it. Then he came 
back for Old Piute. He found it 
much harder to rope the horse alone 
in the corral than he would have 
found it had there been other horses 
there, but he eventually succeeded in 
the task and led the snorting btast to 
the gate, which he swung bpen into 
the big pasture.

under him. He knew he was draw¬ 
ing close to the rock-strewn slope. 
He raised his head and shoulders in 
order to see ahead of him. For an 
instant he beheld, as if it were mov¬ 
ing toward him, a blur of parched 
grass, scattered shrubs, an occasional 
yucca stalk, and numberless brown 
objects that he knew were the sharp 
points of rocks thrust upward from 
the barren soil. He also had a 

pastime. One result of this is that 
the shelves in the school supply 
room sometimes become encumbered

“There ain't no such animal” as 
a perfect texbook. Long years of 
teaching and experience with text¬ 
book, “sundry and various,” have 
convinced us that school texhooks 
are very much alike, the only dif¬ 
ference being that some are worse 
than others. 

In the lasf analysis it is the teach¬ 
er, not the textbook, that makes the 
pupil. A skilled mechanic with in¬ 
ferior tools can turn out better finish¬ 
ed work than the unskilled mechanic 
can with the finest tools made. 
Likewise the able teacher with any 
kind of textbook can produce better 
educational results than the inferior 
teacher can with the best textbooks 

The text-book is a necessary evil; 
for the teacher must have some kind 
of guide or working plan. But the 
wise teacher knows how to touch 
lightly, or omit wholly, what is im¬ 
material and irrelevant and enlarge 
upon what is useful and important. 
It is more desirable for a school to 
hunt for the right kind of teachers

If the above means that no prizes 
are to be given pupils who are to 
continue as pupils, there is little room 
for adverse criticism. Promotions to 
higher classes constitute the awards. 
But if no prizes are awarded those 
pupils who excel when they graduate, 
there is certainly room for disapproval. 
It has always been the custom of 
schools and colleges to reward superior 
excellence in some special way. 
Scholarships, and diplomas cum summa 
laude, have from time immemorial 
testified to the super-excellence ol 
individual achievement. Too many 
prizes are harmful by making them too 
common, but the encouragement and 
effort that a prize for excellence begets 
should never be overlooked. Indiffe¬ 
rence and monotony is dispelled by 
prospective triumph. In the spirit of 
the motto of the Minnesota Com¬ 
panion, the pupils will work to win; 
“It is not in mortals to command suc¬ 
cess; but we’ll do more, deserve it."

At its sixty-first annual meeting 
held on March 7th, at the Toronto 
Alt Gallery, our good friend, Mr.

representative of this society to the 
Ontario College at Art. 

Mrs. Emrys J. Crocker has return¬

M. Queen, in Guelph, with whom she 
had a very pleasant time. 

On their return from Purpleville on 
March 6 th, Mr. and Mrs. H. W. 
Roberts were accompanied by the 
latter’s niece, Mrs. Wilfrid Maginn, 
who spent a few days at “Mora Glen.” 

Our Song Service on March Sth, 
was supplied by Mrs. Charles Wilson, 
at the beginning with the beautiful 
solo “Once I was far Away from My 
Saviour,” that was well rendered, 
while the concluding piece was given 
by Miss Evelyn Elliott. 

Mr. Charles A. Elliott went down to 
Oshawa and conducted the service for 
the deaf of that Mission Station on 
March 5th, then remained over for a 
visit with relatives in that city. 

The present depression does not 
seem to be noticeable in the office of 
Mr. John T. Shilton, at present. Tak¬ 
ing a casual glance of what is going one 
at the Imperial Press, and one would 
wonder how our good and ever busy 
friend could combat the steady flow- 
in of orders, and were he not obliged 
to work at fever heat from early till 
late, friend Johnny would surely find 
it impossible to extract himself from 
this steady running avalanche. 

In a very masterly sermon on “Re¬ 
pent Ye, and Believe in the Gospel,” 
Mr. Wesley E. Ellis drove home many 
strong Biblical points that was most 
helpful to all who turned out at our 
Sunday afternoon service, on March 
Sth. After one has repented it is then 
easier to understand the regenerating 
power of the heart through the work¬ 
ing strength of the Holy Spirit. Mr. 
Ellis is becoming more and more 
practical in his oratorical stability. 

Our Women’s Association held its 
monthly meeting on March 9th, but 
not much business was transacted.

morn he found someone had entered 
his garage and taken his two license

his car he had to appeal to a neighbor 
to help in getting his wife to the hos¬

Charles Moscovitz, a graduate of 
Fanwood, where he learned the art of 
printing, has for several years been 
steadily employed in a large printing 
establishment in Concord, N. H., 
where about fifty magazines are typed 
and printed. He also has a variety of 
equipment in machines and screens to 
sell to societies and fraternities, as 
special agent for Victor Animatograph 
Corporation. He has also films of deaf 
affairs, each approximately 400 feet, 
’hat can be rented for a modest charge. 
His address is No. 11 Franklin Street, 
Concord, N. H. 

On his recent West Indies cruise, 
Mr. Hodgson met in Panama City a 
former Fanwood pupil, Benjamin De 
Castro, whose education from the time 
he was a little boy was obtained at 
the New York Sjchool for the Deaf, 
during consecutive school terms ex¬ 
tending over more than ten years. He 
now uses the English language with 
fluency and grammatical correctness, 
as well as his vernacular, the Spanish 
language. He wishes to be remember¬ 
ed to teachers of his school days at 
Fanwiod, and mentions particularly 
Superintendent Skyberg, Major Van 
Tasseil and Lieut. Edwards. He con¬ 
templates a trip to London and Paris 
during the coming summer, for a limit¬ 
ed visit.

number of appeals for help this year 
and another affair is planned for April 
1st at theCosmopolitian Club. The 
Frats aided this afternoon party, be¬ 
cause the Circle has helped some, 
needy Frats. At 6 o'clock a lunch 
of sandwiches, pie and coffee, was 
sold. Prizes of 75 cents, 50 and 25 
cents, were respectively given to 
James Turner, David Brown and 
Mis. Beisang. 

Mr. and Mis. R. O. Grimse and 
Mrs. Susan Walgren, of San Diego, 
spent a week here late in January. 
They were the guests of Tom Mur¬

So far as known at present no deaf 
died in the earthquake at Long Beach 
and vicinity. The radio warned 
people to keep away, nevertheless 
many autoists on Sunday got as far as 
Huntington Park, a suburb of .Los 
Angeles. At all intersections were 
Legionaires directing traffic. People 
were allowed to park on side streets 
and then walk along the streets view¬ 
ing the ruins. The disaster was not as 
serious as at Long Beach. Since the 
first shock there have been many 
slighter temblors, which keep nervous 
!>eople terror-stricken, but scientists 
say there will not be another severe 
one. All relief agencies are active and 
on Sunday fed 15,000 homeless people. 
This is the worst earthquake ever 
experienced in Southern California.
